The Universal Connection

Written by Jesse S. Somer

Do you believe in random coincidence? Or, do you think that there is some destiny involved when things magically 'come together'?

I believe in a phenomenon I have been known to call a 'Universal connection'. Yesterday one of these destined occurrences deeply affectedrepparttar mood I was in and took me from feeling pretty low and depressed to feeling a joyous epiphany. Let me tell you about what happened. You see, I don't believe in random, arbitrary coincidences. My understanding is that life is a combined relationship between humanity's freewill, andrepparttar 122154 will of a higher power who I call 'The Great Spirit". I believe in a paradoxical type of destiny that is both preordained by this higher power, but also can be altered by our own decisions that we make every moment of everyday. Opportunities and obstacles are presented and then we are to decide whether or not to take any specific action relating torepparttar 122155 situation.

O.K. So yesterday I wasn't feeling very well; I have a history of depression and anxiety and I perceived a few events that happened to me as being quite negative. Well it just so happens thatrepparttar 122156 day before I had been sent an email from my Tai Chi instructor that had some links that related to depression, as they know of my problem. I looked at one site that was about some new form of neurotechnology where listening to a certain type of C.D. is supposed to send one's mind into a deep state of meditation. I am admittedly skeptical about this sort of thing as of course money is always supposed to exchange hands. The good thing about this particular site is that they offer a free sample C.D. of which I ordered.

Anyhow, I started to peruse overrepparttar 122157 information on this site and I came across some quotes by famous people. One that struck me was by a Rabbi Hillel and as my good friend at work is very interested in Jewish culture and religion, I cut and pasted it into Messenger for him to read. As I was feeling down, I left work early and went home to read some more of a book that I've really been enjoying lately. It's called 'Sacred Journey ofrepparttar 122158 Peaceful Warrior' and is written by Dan Millman. It'srepparttar 122159 sequel to a book I really loved entitled, 'Way ofrepparttar 122160 Peaceful Warrior'. After reading for a chapter or two I came up to Chapter 17: 'Courage ofrepparttar 122161 Outcast'. The chapter began with these words:

If I am not for myself, Who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, What am I? And if not now, when? (Hillel, Sayings ofrepparttar 122162 Fathers)
